Rear anti roll bar adjustment

Morning all,

I would like to adjust the rear anti roll bar one setting to stiffen it up. Can someone point me in the direction of instructions to complete this please or explain how it's done?

420R SV.

thanks

Paul

From the Assembly Guide:

Figure 129: Anti-roll bar connections 

1. Bolt
2. Plain washer
3. Extension piece 
4. Drop link
5. Anti-roll bar 

NOTE
Droplink assembly and connections shown rotated through 180° for clarity.

9.12) Anti-roll bar connection and adjustment 

Shorten the droplinks as much as possible ensuring the threaded ends face in the same direction. Tighten locknuts. Remove the nuts from the ends and discard, apply Loctite to the threaded arm of the droplink and screw into the extension piece using washer (15), refer to Fig 133. Pass the threaded portion of the lower droplink through the anti-roll bar and secure with nyloc nut (fastener pack 30R011A Item 9). 

The position of the droplinks in the anti-roll bar determines the degree of the anti-roll given. Positioning the droplinks closer to the pivot (at the cotton reel bushes) will give more roll resistance. The same position must be set both LH and RH. 

The rearmost hole is the softest and forward most hole is the stiffest position.

You can start from the hole farthest forward, go for a drive & experience how the car handles. Beware it could be interesting. I ended up with the second hole in from the rear on my R400. The back end follows well without too much drama . It just depends on what you want & the tyres/suspension fitted.

Also bear in mind that they can be staggered by one hole to give you a finer adjustment between the 4 settings.

Thanks.

The note I posted in #2 above was from "Version 02.2015c". 

Have you got something more recent, please?

I have nothing more recent than 02.2015c for Duratec cars. it's just no longer fitted and the drop link is moved to the other side.  I had a photo sent to me during my 2016 build, but it is shown in 1.2 of the new manual.

Is that a traditional text-heavy version or the new pictorial style? My 1.2 pictorial only goes up to 100...

Thanks

Jonathan
